Jennifer Buttner – Mykidstime Editorial
Jennifer Buttner is originally from Tipperary, and living in Kildare with her husband and son. She spent 14 years working in Semiconductor Engineering, having studied Physics in College, so working on a parenting website is a big change, but one that she loves. After her son was born, she left work to stay at home with him, and suddenly found she was out and about finding activities for them both. Mykidstime has given her the perfect part-time work/life balance she was looking for as a mum.
Caroline Kelly – Mykidstime Campaign Manager
Caroline Kelly is originally from Kilkenny but is now living in Westport, Co Mayo with her husband and daughter. She studied Business Studies & Marketing in DCU and spent ten years working in Sponsorship & Events in Dublin. When her daughter arrived she decided to step out of the business world and enjoy their time together.
She loves to knit, support her native Kilkenny in Hurling and is an active member of a local book club and parent & toddler group.
Caroline loved the opportunity to work part-time from home that Mykidstime offered as it meant she could still spend lots of time with her daughter and take a step back into the working world. She is delighted to be part of the team and looking forward to keeping parents up to date and informed.
Denise Callan – business Development Manager
Denise Callan is a graduate of both UCD and NUIM. Before joining Mykidstime she worked in Rural Development, Tourism, Marketing and in Education. With children who are in Pre-school, Primary school and Secondary school, Denise has spent over a decade familiarising herself with what is available for children (and their parents) in the Sligo area.
In the past few years Mykidstime was the key resource she returned to again and again to get local and up to date information. She was delighted to be asked to join the team and can now fit her work around life with her husband and four busy children.
